Students in both college and high school collected the same data at locations along the James River and communicated their data to each other in a joint project called the “Joining Across Miles Environmental Systems, the JAMES Project.” Students at each site analyzed the data over a period of time. This article provides an insight to how a collaborative project between different institutions can be conducted through the use of technology.
